US_Capitol_Building,_East_side_steps_and_domeI have previously noted that the ultimate strategy for Michael Cohen, the personal lawyer of President Donald Trump, could be a presidential pardon.  With a search warrant covering everything from Stormy Daniels to Ukrainian transactions to Russian deals to taxi medallions, the situation looks pretty bleak for Cohen (who was also allegedly today to be in arrears on his taxes for his medallion business).  As I noted in my recent column, two men are in a position to get Cohen out of the quagmire of his own creation: Trump and Mueller.  If there was any question of whether Cohen is more likely to pursue a pardon than a deal, it was in his comment yesterday to a radio show host:  “I’d rather jump out of a building than turn on Donald Trump.”
